Batteaux - S/T (1973 )

Very nice, very obscure rock/soul album on Columbia -- with a vibe that's difficult to describe, but which fits in nicely with a "Free Soul" aesthetic, and which also gives a strong nod to the Folk Funk Experience. There's nice acoustic guitar, some good space arrangements, and vocals that are very flanged-out! Includes the nice sing-song groover "Tell Her She's Lovely", plus "Mirror", "Wake Me In the Morning", "Lady of The Lake", "Katy", "High Tide", and the cut "Dig Up The Love", which has a bit of a break in the intro.Dusty Groove America

Thanks for posting this. I haven't heard, or even seen, it in quite a long time. Just so you know, this is actually Robin Batteau and his brother David along with others. Robin was in Appaloosa.
